Last week I looked at some of the summer activities that are geared towards the younger generation getting active. This week we take a look at the other summer activities that begin to liven up the community.
Probably the best sign that summer has arrived in full force is when the old lawnmowers start getting pulled out from sheds or dug out of garages to be fueled up and oiled for the coming battles against the lawn. Last summer wasn’t terrible since the lack of rain insured the grass and weeds wouldn’t get out of control, but if the previous months were any indication, this summer is going to be a different story.
Cutting grass is one chore which I absolutely detest. I think it is the futility of the work. You spend an hour or so cutting and trimming only to have to repeat the process in a few days. Then on particularly hot, dry days the cloud of dust kicked up by the mower is enough to cover the house, the one next door and the one across the street with a nice film of powdered Georgia red clay.
